Standards of Excellence
In order for the Carnegie Mellon Fraternity and Sorority community to reach its vision in the future, the Greek Life Advisory Committee believes that individual chapters will be most successful if they fulfill Standards of Excellence that support the values and principles upon which their organizations were founded.
To ensure that fraternity and sorority chapters at Carnegie Mellon University complement the academic mission of the university, develop leadership and character in members, provide service to the community, build community and foster lifelong friendships between members, this document will set forth Standards of Excellence for fraternities and sororities at Carnegie Mellon University. The fundamental purpose of this document is to encourage the fraternity and sorority chapters at Carnegie Mellon University to return to their founding values, which are crucial to the rich development of fraternity and sorority men and women.
** Fraternity and sorority chapters have the freedom to choose not to hold themselves to these standards; participation as a Standards of Excellence chapter is voluntary. Expectations for participation are outlined at the end of this document.
